The Dalai Lama has criticised China’s opposition to the Nobel Peace Prize awarded to jailed dissident Liu Xiaobo.

The exiled Tibetan spiritual leader said the Chinese government did “not appreciate different opinions”.

Building an open society was “the only way to save all people of China”, he told Japanese media.

Meanwhile, Mr Liu’s wife has apparently been placed under house arrest after he dedicated the award to the “martyrs” of Tiananmen Square in 1989.
